Default Update - 21 Days of DSM (7.27.13)

The scape is now three weeks at 100 PAR and no water. I lost one shoot of S. Repens for it was set higher than any of the others (1.5") and likely did not get enough water to the roots. I tend to error on the side of early removal practices for fear of decay, mold, fungus, etc. Especially in such a small tank.

The new Glosso, as individually (read: painfully) planted is doing much better compared to the previous crop which I planted in ametuer fashion.

One of my favorites, a 2" square of UG, should arrive on Monday. It seems others either have one of two experiences with this carnivore: (1) awesome beautiful success; or (2) total failing decay. Any secrets to obtaining route one would be appreciated. The plant as sent comes from an emmersed specimen so hopefully the shock of transport will be offset somewhat by the continuity of growing conditions.

I am looking for more S. Repens if anyone has some to spare. I promise to plant low in altitude as I learned my lesson.

Here is a full frontal right after a healthy misting and front glass cleaning, yet before the application of saran wrap.

P.S. Sorry for the crappy i-phone shots. I need another hobby (photography) like a fish needs a bicycle

Yeah wow. $108 + tax + shipping, they should make it better for the price, like with high clarity glass or something. I guess the popularity drove prices up. That is the downside of this thread. Have gotten so many new members of the club since this and because of it now, it's more expensive for everyone

They should give us discounts!!!

I called marine depot after the price went up and told them I've had the tank in my cart for a while and mentioned the price change. They let me order it for the old price over the phone. It may be too late now, but it won't hurt to try!

What's with all the hand wringing? It's just a $20 or so price increase for a tank profile you really can't get anywhere else.

When you factor in the low price for shipping (it really is cheap - the packaging alone is worth more), it's a steal.

I'm a buyer for a living. A $20 price increase for a ~$75 item is massive to me. :-P That, and I compare to Aqueon, not ADA

That said, the tank is an awesome footprint, just out of this single father's budget.

Believe it or not, Petsmart now carries S. Repens. I put some in my tank and it is thriving.

They also have some sometimes decent Downoi and parvula hair grass.

Mr. Aqua would be comparable to Do! Aqua and other tanks with similar silicone work. GLA, as well, if GLA were still importing OEM tanks.

Though, the price increase is just at a single retailer. Marine Depot was selling them for quite some time at just about wholesale for some reason. Not sure if that was an oversight or because they weren't hot sellers.
